Text Appointment Reminders
Forget me not.
Selling your time? Then you can’t afford no-shows.
Customers failing to attend appointments plague service businesses. Upwards of 20% of billable time can be lost. Worse, it can never be recovered. Once that appointment is gone, it’s gone forever. Time waits for no one. Automated SMS text reminders with return confirmation can cut no-shows by up to 50%. Now’s the time to get your income back. That’s a message you can’t forget.
We investigated the business case for SMS text appointment reminders for a major Hospital. Integrated it directly into their appointment register. No-shows reduced by 44%. Admin costs nearly disappeared. Billing losses in the hundreds of thousands were recovered. Patient satisfaction rose to an unheard of 95%. Waiting lists got trimmed. There’s a healthy result.
Or look at what we did with an optometry software company. Plugged it right into their standalone practice management software. Gave optometrists the chance to put staff to work more productively. Outbound phone calls almost vanished. Appointments got kept more often. Glasses waiting for pick up got collected sooner. Cash flow improved markedly. There’s a sight for sore eyes.
What do you have to lose?
In every case there were hidden costs of loss. Extra labor costs in admin and time spent on the phone. Phone bills. Lost revenue. Unhappy, overworked staff. Customers not getting enough attention soon enough. They walked. And in each case profit walked with them.
We can help you identify where losses can be stemmed. Where cost sinks can be plugged. And revenue increased. Talk to one of our experts. Learn what we’ve done for thousands of businesses.
